Unusual Wedding Venues in London

Epic Unusual London wedding venues.

I’ve never lived in London, but i spend ALOT of time there, you can find some of the most epic venues in the country in and around the big smoke. Here is a selection of some of my favourite unusual wedding venues to shoot in London, as well as some locations that aren’t quite venues – one of them was a car park! Although some of these venues don’t host the ceremony they’re still unbelievable options for your reception.

The Asylum

The Asylum Chapel, a unique London wedding venue, blends history (built 1826!) with character (stained glass, exposed brick). This deconsecrated church offers intimate ceremonies for up to 120 guests. Imagine exchanging vows bathed in soft natural light or under twinkling festoon lights. Though dry hire, its charmingly weathered facade and flexible space can be used as creatively as you like. Celebrate outside in the gardens, then step inside for an unforgettable reception bathed in the chapel’s unique aura.
